再见 2010

by on Dec.31, 2010, under Cavia666

2010 过去, 今年一直住在宝山, 空气新鲜街道笔直, 每天早上有包子吃, 晚上散步碰不到人. 但很快又要搬回去了, 还在徐家汇那边, 整整好一年. 今年事情比09年多了几倍, 生活也没那么宅, 但宅的心还在.

今年看过最好的书, Marcus Aurelius 的 Meditations,

内容主要是古罗马大哥教你做人. 梁实秋1958年翻译过, 太生涩没什么人看. 07年却因为总理一番话火起来, 08年跳出十几个翻译版本. 你信他们能翻出个好东西么, 傻逼出版商. 想看就去找英文盗版.

最好的电影 Richard KellyDonnie Darko,

21世纪之后最好的片子, Barrymore 演女老师 + 世界末日 + 漂亮转校女生 + 梦游死亡兔子. cult! 看不了的话直接点这里.

最佳 mixtape, Kode9 – asia promo mix,

最佳读书音乐, Bjork – Cocoon,

有鼓的时候跑步, 没鼓的时候休息. 听2遍2000米就跑下来了.

最佳嘿咻音乐, Al GreenLet’s Stay Together

太 old-fasion? 本来想选 Marvin GayeLet’s Get It On, 又觉得太直白. 其实完全因人而异, 有人就喜欢听 House, Techno 什么的四四拍不要停, 如果你要慢一点的音乐又不要停也可以试试 Gilles Peterson 的 Worldwide 系列.

最佳夜店歌曲, 没错我是个 DJ, 我推荐 Basement JaxxWhere’s Your Head At?

放出来, 拧一下效果器, 屡试不爽

最差夜店歌曲Talking Heads – Once in a Lifetimemv简直是艺术品, 操

但不管我怎么放下面人都不满意, 估计 Talking Heads 歌迷都在 Wired 杂志工作, 都没来中国. 这他妈可是首好歌.

最佳现场 Daft PunkAlive 1997

最好的电子乐团在最好的状态. 45分钟不放上来了. 我今年看过的最好的现场是 Mouse on Mars 在 Mao Livehouse, 放什么都比2逼 electro 强.

虽然 08年已经拿了 DMC, 但今年才出来做DJ, 第一个正式活动在 Dada 和 Urban Planning 组织一起 (现在叫ROM) . 后来又加入 Antidote, 还跟 Heatwovles 每个月在 Logo 搞烟熏动物party, 效果都不错. 音乐节也去了几个, 牛鱼嘴, 迷笛, Whisper 和 爵士音乐节, 印象深刻.

要谢的人也很多, 不一一说了, 明年会更有意思.

Ella Fitzgerald – Summertime

“Summertime” 最早是 George Gershwin 1930年给歌剧 Porgy and Bess 写的咏叹调, 歌词由 Porgy 的作者 DuBose Heyward 创作. 当时格什温正在尝试自己风格的 “African American folk music”. 这首歌根据乌克兰的一首摇篮曲 Oi Khodyt Son Kolo Vikon (A Dream Passes By The Windows) 改编, 之前在1929年格什温曾经在纽约听到 Oleksander Koshetz 的 Ukrainian National Chorus 演奏过.

歌曲后来迅速的流行起来并被广为翻唱, 据统计光录音版本就有 22700 多种. 它也是 Jazz standard, 被形容为 “without doubt… one of the finest songs the composer ever wrote….Gershwin’s highly evocative writing brilliantly mixes elements of jazz and the song styles of blacks in the southeast United States from the early twentieth century.”

Ella Fitzgerald 这个版本来自 1960年现场录音 Ella in Berlin, 她最好的现场之一. 高中听过这个版本之后至今没有发现更好的, 比她自己的录音室版本都好很多(当然也可能是先入为主). 其他牛逼翻唱包括 Billie Holiday(她第一个让这首歌进入排行榜 #12), Louis ArmstrongGene VincentSam Cooke 还有 Janis Joplin.

歌词,

Summertime and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Oh your daddy’s rich and your ma is good lookin’
So hush little baby, don’t you cry

One of these mornings
You’re goin’ to rise up singing
Then you’ll spread your wings
And you’ll take the sky
But till that morning
There’s a nothin’ can harm you
With daddy and mammy standin’ by, don’t you cry

Tom Waits – Heartattack And Vine

by on Jun.21, 2010, under Cavia666

Heartattack and Vine” is a song from the Tom Waits album by the same name. The song describes the difficulties of life in the crime-ridden parts of Los Angeles, California (Cahuenga is a street in Los Angeles and the local bus system was formerly known as the RTD).

The song makes use of many double meanings and local references (street names, bus system, and colloquial drug slang), often alluding to the fact that nothing is sacred in that part of the city (“there ain’t no devil, there’s just God when he’s drunk”) and how people who moved there from other places looking for a better life end up prostitutes (“Well I bet she’s still a virgin but it’s only twenty-five ’til nine, you can see a million of ’em on Heartattack and Vine.”) and drug addicts (“Boney’s high on china white”) and would have been better off staying in their hometowns (“better off in Iowa against your scrambled eggs, than crawling down Cahuenga on a broken pair of legs”).

The song makes numerous references to the insufflation of cocaine and heroin (“…china white”, “taste of madness” and “let’s do another line”) and prostitution (Cahuenga is a double entendre meaning both the street in Los Angeles and an unusually large male sex organ).
